Overview

This is the first and most comprehensive book in English to cover the full history and practice of divinatory geomancy. While serving as a practical manual, it will be invaluable to all those interested in divination, magic, and astrology.

Geomancy—divination by earth—ranks alongside the tarot, astrology, and the I Ching as a major form of divination. Stephen Skinner explores the roots of geomancy, Islamic geomancy's impact on medieval Europe, its role during the Renaissance, and its use in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. The book also gives practical examples for interpreting and practicing the art, and covers astro-geomancy, which combines astrology and geomancy.
